Anybody out there actually know? Is it flex/stiffness? Not gonna be weight because they are all different. Also, are there just the two designations or is there a B, C and D? Info is appreciated!

I've been told by a Head rep that it's the flex.

57A and 57E are different layups, the A is more flexible

My Austrian PT630 have 57A on the handle and they are more flexible .

Is there any place where we, mere mortals, can buy a 57A?

so last night i had this really cool dream about ernests gulbis. i actually have his racquet that he cracked and i asked him to sign it for me. i was at river oak cc and he was there hitting on the clay and on changeover i had told him yano i actually hit w/your cracked racquet and he busted out laughing and said really!, it still played "well?" and it was just a fun dream and i found out what the pt57e racquet actually is too that its not the i prestige but the pro tour 630. i also asked gulbis what kind of string he strung his racquets with? i know its pacific poly but which one? and i told him that i strung with tecnifibre nrg2 17 and that i break a string once a week, he grabbed my shoulder and said, damn! hows that possible or something, it was a cool dream and ernests is really a cool guy in real life.

There are always some PT280/630 made in austria, on the bay. If you have money, just buy one.

Well, I just received my Austrian PT630 today!!!! I havent taken it out to courts yet and it is still unstrung...but I love the swingfeel and all!!! It feels perfect!! (And I do hope it is not just for the honeymoon phase:)

You mentioned that your PT630 have 57A on the handle. Do you mean under the grip? (Sorry, if that is a stupid question)

Secondly, my PT630 does not have "made in austria" written above the grip, but only on the side of the frame. I am pretty darn sure that this subject have been beaten to death in the forums (though I couldnt find any info on it) but still would appreciate it if you can inform us, newcomers to PT630 scene :)
Below are pix of my new stick

What a statement. Just by holding an unstring racket in the air, and you can tell it is perfect. lol. no more comments.

LOL..Well it feels perfect compared to my POG OS, way more maneuverable for net game.
More HL compared to my PDR.
Denser string pattern compared to all the 16 mains sticks I have, which is perfect to take away some power from me. And it will also help with placement.
These being said of course, while still in the honeymoon phase :)
Thanks for the comment, by the way!

i always went back and forth liking the pt 280. mine was stolen and now they're too expensive to get a replacement. one thing i've always liked...damn, that is one fine looking frame.
also, does anyone know what code the original radical (trysis) has? is it a PT57-something-or-other?

"Trisys" was nothing more than a Marketing Strategy for the North American Market. Trisys was a swing rating meter the lower the number the more power the racquet has or the shorter the swing of the player. While the higher the racquet had the control the racquet had or the longer loopy the swing of the player. They came in lot of different colors. The European Market had normal names on the racquet. It went from Trisys 150 to Trisys 300. A small example of how this worked is: The Trisys 150 (Gold and brown) was just The Discovery in Europe (HEAD sold the Discovery in the U.S. as the Discovery in 1991 and 1992), The Trisys 270 (Green) was the Graphite Tour in Europe, and the Trisys 300 (Red) was the Prestige Tour in Europe.
